The lighting of candles is an ancient Christian tradition. The flame represents the Light of Christ. As the Candle offers itself to lighten the darkness, so Christ offered himself to enlighten the world.
St. Nicholas is now offering the option to light a candle online, so you can have a candle lit in our little church wherever you are.
One candle is $2.50, and it will be lit at the next service and your name will be given to Father and he will pray for you as he prepares the gifts for Liturgy.
Candles can be offered for a prayer, health and healing, salvation, birth, engagements, memorials, or any reason at all.
